    Manu Sorenson appears in Circuit Court on Jan. 6, 2020 in Honolulu. Sorenson is accused of shooting to death Jacob Feliciano in a 2018 shooting at a Kapiolani Boulevard game room.

A jury began deliberating Monday the fate of Manu Sorensen, the man accused of firing a single shot that killed a patron at an illegal Ala Moana game room.

Sorensen is on trial for murder, first-degree robbery and three firearm charges in the death of 31-year-old Jacob Feliciano at Gameroom Rock Za Sura at 1726 Kapiolani Blvd. Murder carries a mandatory life term with the possibility of parole. The jury also has an option of manslaughter, which carries a maximum 20-year prison term.

Feliciano was shot Sept. 29, 2018, during a botched robbery by Sorensen and a second suspect, Robin Paakaula, whose trial is pending.
